It is with deep sorrow and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our much loved team member, Gary Blake, from The Imps Motorcycle Display. Gary bravely fought a battle with lung cancer, but sadly, he succumbed to the illness earlier today, on December 31, 2023.
Gary, an integral part of our team, joined us in the early 80s and served with dedication for approximately eight years. He was not only a skilled and talented performer but also an incredibly fun-loving and mischievous individual who brought joy and laughter to all those around him.
During his time with The Imps, Gary proved to be a valued member, consistently demonstrating his passion for motorcycle displays alongside his commitment to teamwork and camaraderie. His infectious spirit and enthusiasm for the thrill of the ride inspired all who had the pleasure of working with him.
While our hearts are heavy, we take comfort in the wonderful memories we shared with Gary. His legacy will forever be etched in the annals of The Imps Motorcycle Display, reminding us of his indomitable spirit and unwavering dedication to his craft.
At this time, we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Gary's family, friends, and loved ones. Our thoughts and prayers are with them during this difficult period of grieving.
Rest in peace, dear Gary Blake.
Roy Pratt MBE Imps Team Director
